Broken Ones Lyrics

Maggie came home one day with a raggedy,
Raggedy Ann.
She said " Mama, look what I found in the
neighbors garbage can."
It had a missing left arm, and a right
button eye hanging by a thread
She carried it gently up to her room and
laid it one her bed with her other dolls.

Chorus:
She loves the broken ones, the ones that
need a little patchin' up
She see's the diamond in the rough and
makes it shine like new
It really doesn't take that much, a
willing heart and a tender touch
If everybody loved like she does, there'd
be a lot less broken ones.

Twenty years later at a shelter on
Eighteenth Avenue
A seventeen year old girl shows up all
black and blue
with needle tracks in her left arm, almost
too weak to stand,
She says,"I'm lost and I need help", as
Maggie takes her hand
And says, "Come on in!"

Chorus

Bridge:
If you called her an angel, she'd be
quick to say to you
She's just doing what the one who died for
her would do

Love the broken ones, the ones that need a
little patchin' up
See the diamond in the rough and make it
shine like new
it really doesn't take that much, a
willing heart and a tender touch
If everybody loved like He does, there'd
be a lot less broken ones
If everybody loved like He does, there'd
be a lot less broke ones.

To me this song talks about loving with an unconditional love. Jesus died for us and gave us life. Can't we find enough love in our hearts to love someone who is hurt and broken? Love is unconditional. Love is amazing because GOD IS LOVE. And He loved us.
